Beautiful home in a nice quiet neighborhood just a short drive to park to view sunrise. The home is very nicely furnished, very comfortable and even had games and movies for the kiddo!
The host made our stay very inviting. There was a very relaxing and comfortable hammock in a beautiful covered lanai. The house was equipped with all the necessary household goods. I was traveling from California and I was baking a cake and I was happily surprised to find a mixer that did the trick! The neighborhood was very laid back and the neighbors were all very pleasant.
The house was spacious and a great value! Check in and out could not have been simpler. We were very pleased to find beach chairs and towels available. Well located in a great part of the island. We saw a few roaches, understandable as they are hard to control in the wet environments. For the value I think most could forgive this.
Daniel was very helpful and informative. He gave us a several page itinerary suggestion which turned out to be one of our favorite things to do on the hilo side of the island. The house was nicely sized and in a good location. Though there was no cable, there was a large collection of DVDs. Daniel had fresh flowers throughout the house for our arrival which was wonderful. A washer and dryer was a wonderful amenity.
This place is amazing! It was the perfect respite for my parents, husband, and I. We got to Big Island early the first day and Daniel let us in immediately. His flexibility in this relived a lot of stress for me. There were beautiful fresh flowers in all of the rooms. The beds were ridiculously comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bathrooms were clean and stocked with toiletries. The neighbors were kind and full of useful information. We spent the last morning at a hot spring nearby. Everyone in our group was happy and comfortable. I couldn't have asked for better. I had to drag myself away and would stay here again in an instant. This is truly a gem in paradise.
The house is very beautiful and spacious (there were 5 of us and we managed to not constantly stumble upon each other!), exactly as on the pictures. We stayed there 6 nights, and travelled all around the Big Island from this point. Hilo is only 20 min away driving, Volcano National Park is 30-40 min. You can walk to the rocky shoreline (no swimming there, just enjoying sunrise and waves) in 10 min. Also, plus of the location -- you are in the village, behind you a jungle, and only sounds you might hear are of exotic birds and.. roosters.
There were only couple cons:
- There are 3 mattresses as mentioned in the description, but there are no pumps to pump them.. There are two queen beds, but they are not enough for 5 people, and the couch is quite small/narrow for average adult (my dad had to sleep there, and he is very thin). So if you are looking to use the air mattresses, you have to bring your own pump.
- The bed sheets are on the beds only, no extras. So one of us had to sleep in the sleeping bag (which was not comfortable at all).
Daniel was a great host. Was very prompt with the reservation and had the keys ready for us to occupy his home ahead of time. He was even friendly enough to give us some great reccommendations of "under the radar" sites to see in the area. Overall a great trip and great experience with Daniel.
We were very pleased to stay in Daniel's house first of all because it was clean, very spacious, we felt like in our own home. Everything was as described and all questions answered by Daniel. The neighborhood was very quiet and pleasant. The only thing that was unexpected - and it wasn't at all Daniel's fault - was the power outage the first night; but we had candles and matches left by the host on a night table. If it hadn't been so far from the mainland, we would have visited the place again. We feel sorry for the people who lost their houses due to the volcano activity, and pray that this wouldn't happen to Daniel.
Daniel, thanks for being so accommodating and always being available to answer questions. We had a great time in your home. It was very convenient to have a kitchen, and the layout was perfect for our family. Thanks so much!
The home was beautiful and spacious, exactly what we were looking for. It was a little far from town, but we knew this and were looking forward to the quiet, it just might not work for someone who wants to be super close to everything. Daniel responded quickly to all my questions and called to check on on us. Overall a very lovely experience!
